Would you be comfortable selling a spy computer software?

    I have been offered a spy computer software site. The software basically helps to monitor whats going behind your back when you are not around. So, you can monitor your employees, kids etc.

    While I was reading some testimonials on the site, some said that they caught their soul-mate surfing porn site, others said that they caught their former business partner checking out important files, boyfriend caught by girlfriend on dating sites and so on..

    Really made to stop to consider this site. Can't really blame the site owner for this, but don't really want to get into these things consciously or unconsciously because I would feel a bit bad selling something like this that can cause trouble to someone.

    What are your thoughts. Is it really as bad as I am thinking?

    Are you talking about a keylogger? There are tons of
    different versions available from various companies.

    I'd be pretty divided on this as well, but as long as it makes you money... After all, the "trouble" isn't without reason - they were actually doing something "bad" or "immoral" themselves.

    It's a legitimate solution to legitimate problems. What other kinds of arbitrary uses and problems arise are not of your concern.

    Similar to keylogger but this one allows to view the visited sites ( not sure if keylogger does that) and allows to schedule time. the software is currently being sold online for around $30.

    I pretty much agree but my heart says you will make money one way or the other so why be a part of such things in the first place :)
